Esk View is a beautiful, pink granite Victorian family house, with exceptional views from all the windows, set in its own grounds, 400 yards down a gravel lane on a small rise in the middle of the stunning valley of Eskdale. Built in 1898 and tastefully modernised in 1996 it still retains its marble fireplaces, mahogany staircase, exposed beams in top floor bedrooms and flagstone floor in the kitchen. You can be sure of comfort whenever you decide to come as besides open marble fireplaces in both the lounge and dining room it has full central heating.
Eskdale on a spring evening. Esk View is in the red square, Brook House Inn is the white building to the left and Boot village is just a little further to the left of the picture. The mountains in the background from right to left are Harter Fell, Weatherlam (in the distance), Hardknott, and the start of Crinkle crags
